It is beyond belief how good these shows are I may need to see it again!
Glad to hear you had fun! How cool he played Long Time Coming I'm jealous!!! I bet that sounded great! And is his son looking more and more like him?

The view from my seat - these were the only pictures I could take, since security was being very watchful.





At one point they came up to me during Atlantic City telling me to put my phone away. I wasn't even taking pictures - just calling someone so they could hear the song.

There were so many highlights I can't even begin to list them all... Atlantic City was pretty cool, and the new version of Further On (Up The Road) was interesting, but very good, as well. I loved every last minute of it - it was really fucking cool and I'd see him do this type of show again in a heartbeat.

One more thing - I said it the first time I saw him and I'll say it again - the man is FINE. I don't care if he's my dad 's age, he's still got it. All of us girls in the front pretty much looked like this whenever he came over to us.

clarence clemmons just performed the national anthem before game 5 of the NBA finals, and i must say, it was one of the best renditions i've heard in a long long time.

Last night's show was so much fun ... the most fun I've ever had at a Bruce show, and I've seen seven of them. The new band's versions of Cadillac Ranch and Open All Night are incredible. I only wish I could see the show again.

FYI: I posted a review of the show in my Interference journal.

Wow, you were very close. That must have been awesome.

Very cool how everyone who is getting out to these shows are loving them just as much as I did...

It certainly was.

It was really great to see the crowd so into it. I mean, it's pretty near impossible to NOT have a great time at a Springsteen show, but still, pretty damn cool.

According to an interview with Clarence at the game last night:

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/heat/co...onds_0619.html
When are we going to see you with the E Street Band?
Who? I don't know. Bruce (Springsteen) is out doing his thing right now. He said the other day there'll be a new tour in '07.


Will be interesting! Big fan of all the classics but I really love hearing all this new stuff from Bruce! And seeing him havig so much fun It'll definitely help fill in the gap waiting for the next U2 tour......

Wonder when this will be, especially if the rumours of him continuing this tour into the fall are true.

New E Street material and tour...

But, I could go for another show like I saw this weekend first!

some pictures of the big man doing the anthem at the NBA finals... what might have been the best national anthem i've seen done at a major sporting event in a long long time.

Clarence.


I bet you're going to be kicking yourself for not catching him this time, Shannon. It was an awesome time!

Headache, as a long-time Springsteen fan, I'd dearly love to see at least one more E Street Band album and tour.

But the SSB show I saw was just so much fun .... I'd love to be able to see it again, too.

latest Rolling Stone magazine - Eddie Vedder article

But it was yet another of Vedder's famous friends who would help him resolve the central drama of his life. Vedder's mother was in the middle of a painful divorce from Mueller when she told Eddie, then seventeen, the truth about his parentage. Vedder and Mueller were already at odds -- at one point, he has alleged, his stepfather pushed him down a flight of stairs. (Mueller has denied it.) As a kid, Vedder tells me, he used to cope with his pain over that relationship by going to a park with his guitar and singing a song by one of his heroes, Bruce Springsteen -- "Independence Day," the tale of a father and son parting ways: "There was just no way this house could hold the two of us." On 2004's Vote for Change Tour, Vedder finally became close with Springsteen.

One night, Vedder and Springsteen -- who famously worked out his own father issues in his music -- stood on a Manhattan rooftop, drinking tequila. "We were talking politics, and then got into family politics, of which we'd experienced a great deal and had a lot in common. It was a pretty intense conversation," Vedder says, haltingly. "He exposed me to some truths that he'd processed in a healthy way, that for me were still in a diseaselike state. He helped me cure some things I had been living with for a long time."

That night, Vedder told Springsteen how he used to play "Independence Day" and how his music had affected him. "You helped me as a voice coming from a piece of vinyl," he told him. "Now you helped to put it away by being a human being in front of me."

Not long after the conversation with Springsteen, Vedder attended the wedding of one of his brothers. There, he came face to face with his stepfather for the first time since the Eighties. "When I finally had to meet that guy again, Bruce was the one who got me in the right space to handle it," he says. "I have three younger brothers -- if it affected them that I didn't have a relationship with this guy, that was enough reason to forgive and resolve things. I didn't want them to be torn between the two of us."
